Mamas in Mongolia

In Germany, you see this sign all over the place - it means there is a quiet place for you to breastfeed your baby when you are out in public places.

Imagine that.

My little nugget gets distracted by the sound of my voice, so you can imagine how unsuccessful breastfeeding in public is. So its something he and I do - away from the world.
What amazes me is that it is still a debate - a conversation about modesty or rightness or appropriateness. Imagine if it were simply a non-issue.

My dear friend Amanda emailed me this wonderful story about Breastfeeding in Mongolia
Whether you breastfeed or bottle feed or wean early or nurse long, this is just another perspective, just another mother and baby relationship.
